Time for new truck tires, any suggestions?

Sorry Gene but the Bridgestone Duelers that have 36k on them were never much of a tire to begin with and now they are downright scary on wet pavement.

Before you suggest please keep in mind I will be turning this truck in 18 months from now on a new 2008 GMC...

TIA guys

I have that same set of tires and while quieter than the BFG's or the Wranglers I have run, I will go back to wranglers next time
Look at tirerack.com for good deals on either of them
I will say that the Bridgestones didnt seem so slippery when wet when they were new... now with 36k on them, they are noisier and slipperrrriieeeeerrrrrrr

I second that . I am on my 2nd set(2 different trucks) of BFG A/T KO's and they are awesome in the wet/snow. They are a little more expensive than some other options, but well worth the $$ IMHO. Just make sure you keep them rotated

Are you looking for an AT, MT or street only?

The best AT tires I have ever had are the Bridgstone Dueler AT Revo. They are not your regular Dueler so don't let that sway you.

Revo

For a street tire I just got a set of Nitto NT420S's. These are a very sticky street tire, but I cannot comment on how well they will do on snow and ice. I bet they are not very good, but we don't get much, if any snow and ice.

NT420S

I have also heard great things about the Nitto Terra Grappler but I have no personal experience with them.

Terra Grappler

I have an ex girlfriend who's dad owns a tire place in Sellersburg In. He gives me good discounts on tires that is my suggestion.

I am in the market also for truck tires. The Michlens XCX/ATP's I have have 62K on them and getting a little low on thread. I would buy the same tires again since hese ones served me so well, but the truck has 122K on it and I really don't want to spend the 800 a new set cost.

I think I am about to buy a set of Mastercrafts for $480 mounted, that are claimed to be 50K tires.

Not that it will help the far off folks, Carmax swaps off every set of tires off every vehicle it sells. One local tire shop sends a guy down once a week to muddle through the replaced tires... some of which are almost brand new. Long story short went to three local tire shops $860 was the best quote. Then I found out about this (yes they are reputable) place almost brand new set of Michelins $120. mounted/ balanced. Have ridden about 10k since with no problems at all...
